JD 1992 : Hello and thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am an expert here and I look forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification.
JD 1992 : I am assuming that they are suing him under a breach of contract theory and if so he needs to file an Answer.
JD 1992 : An example of the form to be used can be found at http://www.courts.ca.gov/formname.htm
JD 1992 : However, a Motion to Dismiss is rarely granted and it is too early to even be considering one. There are a lot of "internet experts" who don't have law degrees or any experience in the legal field who talk about these as if they are granted regularly and that is just not the case. A Motion to Dismiss is only granted when the pleadings fail, on their face, to establish a case.
JD 1992 : He may be able to sue one of those or, more likely, a Motion for Summary Judgment but it will only be after he does discovery.
JD 1992 : I'd suggest he look at three inexpensive e-books that are sold at http://lessonsinlaw.com/the-guerrilla-guides-to-the-law/ for help in defending himself.
JD 1992 : He wants to look at the ones on discovery, legal research, and debt collection.
JD 1992 : They're inexpensive but are full of good information for someone who doesn't have a lot of experience in the legal system. The author cut through all the unnecessary information that is usually in books for people representing themselves and instead focused on the important things.
JD 1992 : The website is showing you are offline so I will save and exit so I can assist others. If you have any additional questions please feel free to ask them in this thread. I will be online most of the day but it may take a little while for me to answer if I am assisting others.
